TWTW - the one with the water watch

After working in the office Friday morning, I came home to deal with a leaking hot water heater so MFD could make his Friday afternoon meetings. I made a pit stop to pick up this week's flowers first. 
Friday night we met the beautiful little Autumn Rose, Meiera & Dan's almost three week old darling daughter and had Santucci's.
We had plans to go downtown Saturday for the March for Humanity and Chinese New Year celebrations at Reading Terminal, but since the hot water heater was being replaced we ended up staying close to home. I finally ran the dishwasher, showered, and did some laundry when the hot water was back in full effect. While we were waiting for that, it was basically dog show and putting together my new KEEP stuff. I consider the charms like my totems. 
I finished a book (The Goddesses by Swan Huntley) and started another (Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain), we ate at On the Border like we were going to the chair, MFD picked up some shelves at Home Depot, and we did a little grocery shop at Target. We were slugs Saturday night and in bed early. We attempted to continue watching The OA but I think we're just not that into it. It's not you, it's us, The OA.
Sunday was weekly food prep, and some work in the basement. I put stuff back from the great hot water heater leak of 2017, built the sturdy plastic shelves and a coat rack, and did some purging. More work to do down there but I'm pleased so far. I also moved some stuff around on the walls in my new reading corner. I removed the clock last week and I couldn't hang with it not being there. I also wanted to liberated the wave painting I got at Peace of Wood from the basement. 
Weekly food prep: homemade whole wheat waffles for breakfasts with berries and peanut butter; scrambled eggs topped with broccoli for lunches;  Judy's chicken (recipe coming tomorrow) over egg noodles with a side of spinach for dinners. Other dinners include salmon with roasted potatoes and steamed veggies since I ended up not making that last week. 
Other Sunday things were sheet changing and the laundry and all that jazz.



No Super Bowl watching here, but I did eat wings and veggies with dip. I watched VEEP instead. 




Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston for Weekending

  2. Those flowers are so pretty, and baby feet...honestly...one of the cutest things ever. Have a great week, Steph.

  3. What a cozy little reading corner! The Danes - I'm currently obsessed - would say that's very "hygge."

  4. I'm still not used to the clock situation in Gamma and Pop's kitchen. It was in the same place for 50 years lol! I am ready to go to bed early in the winter time. It's crazy.
    I should have been a hibernating bear! Wishing everyone a happy and easy week.
    Love. Your. Momma.

  5. Love the baby feet picture- when my LO was a newborn I was always taking pics of her feet! Haha.

    Your food prep is so impressive #Goals

    I love your reading space!

  8. I love Mae in the hoodie :) Our hot water tank has a slight leak and we've been ignoring it. We need to get it fixed before it gets worse. Ugh. Homeownership can be a real bitch. Haha.

  9. I loved Necessary Lies! It was very intriguing. OTB is great. I'm jealous of your waffle maker! Hope you have a great week!

  10. I'm always SO impressed with your food prep Sundays. Can you come over and do that for us? LOL
    We had a duvet weekend, basically lying in bed watching Netflix thanks to SO much snow. It was very restful.

  11. So when you meal prep waffles, how do you keep them? IN freezer or just out? & do you warm them up or put in a toaster? Curious about that.

  12. Baby feet and animal paws are two things that always make me go awwww! I foolishly ran to the grocery store to pick up just a few things Sunday morning and it was packed with people getting stuff for the Superbowl. Argh. Your meal prep is inspiring me. I made egg muffins yesterday and I'm trying to do more prep to make my life easier during the week and help me eat better too.

  13. I like The OA a lot but it was weird AF.

    My weekend was spent covered in glitter and fueled by coffee and way too much salad.

  14. Sorry to hear about the water heater, but yes to flowers first! And look at those baby footsies! Totally jealous of your slug night, I need one of those stat :-D

  15. We literally have zero space for anything in our kitchen, but every time I see someone making waffles, I swear I'll keep a waffle maker on our bookshelf or something- YUM. Love your Keep charms and sounds like an overall productive weekend, even with the water heater issues!

  16. oh those shelves are so glorious cleaned out! Look at all that surface area. Congrats on getting your water back - that's the most annoying issue to have plague your home. I can only imagine how frustrating it is when you don't have a landlord to call!

  17. I love Veep. I barely watched the game. I'm just in it for the food.
    Speaking of, I think I need to get on the waffle-train. I never eat them but make "healthier" pancakes a lot.

  18. Baby feet are the cutest!!! That so stinks about your water heater. I hate adulting things like that. Waffles with berries sound so good right now!

  19. Is your turquoise cart from Ikea? I want one and of course that color is sold out and going for twice the price on eBay. I've read Necessary Lies and while it wasn't super memorable (title is kind of generic, I guess) it did teach me about something that I knew nothing about and I always like that in books.

  20. I love your beachy KEEP stuff! And I'm so glad we have Tiffany now to go through! We watched one episode of The OA and I was done. Jacob wants to keep going. I might give it another episode.

  21. oh my gosh look at those itty bitty baby feet. giving me baby fever! and what a pretty name. i know i'm a few days late but i can't wait to see your thoughts on necessary lies.
    don't worry, you're not missing anything with the OA. i can tell you what happens if you want. except not really because it's really weird and doesn't make any sense. KC and i really liked the first few episodes but then it got crazy weird and eh.
